On the wind-blown desolate moors two sisters and their mastiff scheme to wrest their destinies from the systems and the savage land around them. A governess is summoned and a moor-hen drops in, forcing all to ask what price they might pay for autonomy and for love. Inspired (perhaps) by certain 19th-century gothic romances, and the sisters who wrote them, this savage comedy disrupts the conventions of status and visibility. 

As recommended in News-Nation
